Strategies for Confronting Unconscious Bias


The article "Strategies for Confronting Unconscious Bias" by Kathleen Nalty, published in The Colorado Lawyer in May 2016, discusses the pervasive issue of unconscious biases in the legal profession and their impact on decision-making. The article cites research indicating that the unconscious mind is responsible for the majority of thought processes, and these biases can lead to poor decision-making. It argues that recognizing and addressing unconscious biases is essential for becoming more effective lawyers and for the legal industry to become more inclusive.
